It is possible to select a specific area of a raster using another layer (raster or entity) as a template whose extension delimits the extent of the output raster. The output raster will maintain its attribute table, bounded to the extension that we have imposed.


To do so, we are going to load a vector layer with the towns located in the region Axarquia of Malaga, Spain.


Using the “Extract by Mask” tool we indicate the input raster, the raster or entity later that we use to define the areas to extract (Input raster or feature mask data) and the name and location of the output raster.


The result would be a DEM of the Axarquia region with the imposed layer of the towns that comprise it.
